Hi there,

What I could suggest is double-checking if the Droplet that you are trying to SSH to is up and running. You can check that via your DigitalOcean Control Panel here:

Also if the Droplet is up and running I would recommend connecting via your Web console and see if the SSH service is running and make sure that port 22 is open.

Regards, Bobby

I use Ubuntu 20.04 (LTS) x64.

I start by updating a project.

After disconnection, I can no longer connect with ssh. I already have the key host implemented.

I try :

ssh: connect to host port 22: connection timed out.

Still no connection to ssh.
